The Guild

Please note that Mr David Wright has had to cancel taking the March meeting and that this meeting will now be taken by a speaker talking about 'Life in Malawi' and what we can do to help.


With around 30,000 members, the Church of Scotland Guild is one of Scotland's largest voluntary organisation.

There is a very loyal membership of approximately 30 members, all ladies although the Guild is also open to men. We meet once a month on an evening basis from September to April. After business and devotions there is usually a speaker, very often with a power point presentation. The subjects cover a wide spectrum. This is followed by tea/coffee, a biscuit, friendship and fellowship.

Each year we have a fund raiser, usually a coffee morning. From the proceeds of this we are able to give support financially to the Church, to Dr Graham’s Homes in Kalimpong with whom we have a special relationship and to Erskine Hospital, as well as to one of the Guild’s Partnership Projects. From September 2015/2018 our Guild is supporting the Street Pastors project.
